Brett Favre expects drop-off in production from Davante Adams without Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback

How Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams transitions to life in the NFL without Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback is an intriguing storyline heading into the 2022 season.

Green Bay's former QB-WR duo was one of historic proportions, with Adams leading the league in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns the last five seasons combined. That extraordinary production led to Adams becoming the highest-paid WR in NFL history this offseason, but getting paid accordingly came at the cost of his memorable connection with Rodgers coming to an end.

As Adams enters his next chapter with the Raiders in 2022, legendary Packers QB Brett Favre is expecting a drop-off in his production based solely off him needing to adjust to a new quarterback, Michael Baca of reports.

"No disrespect to Davante at all -- zero disrespect. I do think that Davante will make Derek Carr better and, in time, they will be a dynamic duo. Now will it be the duo that Aaron and Davante had? Time will tell," Favre told TMZ Sports on Saturday. "I think Derek Carr is a very good quarterback, but he's not in Aaron's league yet. He may never be, and that's no disrespect either, but I do think that Davante owes a great deal of gratitude to Aaron and the Packers drafting him."

"That's not to say he's not a great player because he is a tremendous player and we'll see that with Las Vegas. But it's just hard to shift gears, especially from a player as prolific as Aaron Rodgers. I'd be shocked if he had the same year he's had this year. That's not to say he can't do it, but I would be shocked."

Adams enters 2022 with not only a new QB in Derek Carr but an entirely new offensive system under new head coach Josh McDaniels. However, his new circumstances in Las Vegas aren't all that foreign considering Carr and Adams played two full seasons together at Fresno State. The Carr-Adams connection produced 3,031 receiving yards and 38 touchdowns off 233 receptions in 36 games played for the Bulldogs. Both entered the NFL as second-round draft picks in 2014.
